Kitley told Lubbock Avalanche-Journal: “I’m going to encourage him to [go pro]. He’d turn down too much money. He can tweak his hamstring next year and get nothing. How are you going to turn down $350,000 for five years or $400,000 for five years or $500,000 for five years — two and a half million dollars? You can’t do it. Not in our world. Not in the track world. I mean, that’s a lot. He’s a sprinter, so he has an opportunity to get some of that bigger money.” ALSO READ Arewa youths say Kalu deserves deputy senate president’s seat | The Guardian Nigeria News - Nigeria and World NewsThough the 22-year old announced he is going professional, he will still get his degree in December and train at Texas Tech.
